StepXStep: Connecting Men of Color to College

Clemson University’s Tiger Alliance helps hundreds of 9th-12th grade men of color get on a college-bound path and create a college-going culture in families and communities. Its integrated model includes mentoring and access to information and resources on all aspects of college prep. Hear best practices, data, outcomes and experiences from a program director; a counselor in a partner H.S.; and a student who’s been on both sides-as a Tiger Alliance participant and now a pre-med mentor.
